Child welfare struggles to manage child abuse and neglect and to seek permanency for children, while being culturally responsive to the communities it serves.

This article describes the model and a culturally competent method for assessing and adapting the model for the African American, Cherokee, and Latino/Hispanic communities in North Carolina.
